Meet The Real Wonder Bra: This One Saves Detroit Woman’s Life

In an unbelievable stroke of luck at certainly one of the unluckiest of moments in her lifetime, the bullet aimed directly at her from the building next to where she was standing didn’t kill her. Read this amazing tale of survival aided by what used to be referred to as an “unmentionable.”

According to news sources, a 57-year-old Detroit woman was shot by a group of men she saw breaking into a neighbor’s house. One of them shot directly at her, but she was saved from certain death when the under wire in her bra deflected the bullet.

We think it looked something like this.

According to Phillip Cook, police spokesperson:

“The bullet struck the under wire on the woman’s bra and that saved her from a more serious injury. It slowed the bullet down. She did sustain injuries but they are not life threatening.”

The woman, who was not identified, was treated at a nearby hospital. The suspects in the shooting were, unfortunately, not apprehended.

Perhaps in addition to a better-patrolled neighborhood watch, more secure locks and more attentive guard dogs, safety equipment against burglars might include a wonder bra with a really sturdy under wire?

Guys, you are out of luck on this one.
